Traveling the Journey with You,
Trudy Shea, MSEd, RYT-200
Reiki Master, Certified Crystal Healing and Meditation Teacher, Warriors at Ease Level 1, Somatic Approaches to Healing Trauma/JFK University
Trudy’s childhood was filled with day after day of nature exploration, animals, learning about woodland herbs from her father and grandmother, and a passion for horses. She says her most important childhood lesson was to surrender to the dense silence of a deep forest without fear. Trudy’s meditation and yoga journeys began in 1968 with Transcendental Meditation. She completed a Mindfulness program at the Center for Greater Good and also follows the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, Sharon Saltzberg, Dr. David Frawley, Yogini Shambhavi, and Dr. Robert Svoboda. In 1980, she became a Reiki Master and in 2002, a certified life coach and owner of In-Balance Life. Trudy teaches classes and workshops for many age groups and body types focusing on deep restoration and whole-body wellness. Her teaching is influenced by Somatic Techniques, Tai Chi, the Warriors at Ease program for veterans, Vedic teachings and Ayurveda. Her undergraduate degree in science and music opened the way to explore Sound Healing which facilitates a deep meditative state to balance the body’s energetic centers; the chakras. Her passion is guiding people experiencing anxiety, trauma, depression, stress, and grief toward transformational change by focusing on mind, body, and spirit integration through life coaching, the practices of meditation, yoga, Vedic Astrology, and Ayruveda.
Yoga is greater than Asana. Yoga is a way of life, a way of being authentic as you show up in the world. Although the physical effort and mindful body movement of an asana is important to our practice, it is just one of the practices of the eight practices that provide guidelines for living a yogic life. The eight practices of yoga are identified as the “8 Limbs of Yoga” and often are illustrated as a tree with deep roots into the Earth and the eight branches reaching upward toward the sky. This illustration of the 8 Limbs of Yoga show the foundation of thought that we are bringing our life force (prana) from above and grounding it into the Earth. Each branch represents one of the eight practices. Each practice may occur simultaneously or sequentially resulting in a deep state of well- being (Samadhi). Yoga and meditation classes provide an integrated experience with breathwork, mudras, meditation, asana, and contemplation.
